Throughout the advanced industrial world, labor unions, once seen as key institutions in economic and social life, vehicles for social integration, political participation, and economic redistribution, are in crisis. How did this change in organizational fortunes occur? Is this decline inevitable or can unions reform themselves as important and viable institutions? What role can labor play in the new economy? Drawing on bodies of literature from different fields (industrial relations, sociology, history, and political science) and focused on different national cases, this graduate reading and research seminar examines these and other related questions. Open to advanced undergraduates with permission of instructor. (less)

The premise of the course is that the primary issue in transition involves institution-building and re-building in different contexts. (less)
